When creating a SparkPeople cookbook with recipes that other members have provided, instead of creating one cookbook, create several. It is much easier to find a recipe if you have them in separate cookbooks, for main dishes, salads, desserts, baked goods, side dishes, etc.

When I am sick of eating healthy, I like to get out my healthy cookbooks & look through them for ideas. The pictures look so yummy that it is hard not to get motivated to get back on track. I always seem to find something new & delicious.
I like Hungry Girl cookbooks the best!
I LOVE cooking !!! The Sparkrecipes here are pretty easy to fix,have helpful comments that I have been able to use, and list all the calories by each ingredient! What could be easier? I know--trying something new! But if you DON"T use the SP recipes , you are robbing yourself of some pretty good dishes that help with the weight loss! They are filling,low on calories[at least I require the recipes I choose to be around 200-400 cals.so that's low to me!] since most of the time I prepare ...
...them for dinner. I am still working on my cookbooks,as I feel I need quite a few recipes[at least 10 ] to post a public cookbook! And I want to try ALL the recipes I choose. I have started work on at least 8 cookbooks right now....
I spent the money for a recipe program for my computer and save recipes I find in magazines, books, online, etc.. We can only recall and save so many recipes from the many places we see them. This way, recipes I find which are healthy and look good are at my fingertips. This program actually allows me to copy a recipe and "captures" it to avoid a lengthy process of transcribing it over.
I bought Living Cookbook 2011 online for $35.00 and do like it.
